Automatic TRANSCRIPT

These are one of the categories that being placed in high risk people that really have to be very careful Before deciding fast really and free type twos as you were saying it's It's a little easier because their body does produce insulin and they're not taking insulin which could create a hike gratton episode for two diabetic. Some of them are still on insulin. But you said a very correct statement for diabetic their bodies to produce insulin and theoretically when they stop eating their own insulin. Production will start to come down and that prevent them from having significant severe. Low Sugar Action But people who are type two are still taking some basil and so on. They definitely can talk.
